There's a 65 Econoline in the catalog but it's rotten. Sitting since the 70's took it's toll. I would have thought there would be a first or sec gen chevy in the pile. There is a whole row of "brand new" 63-66 pickups. I've been hearing about this collection for years. Seems if a vehicle didn't sell after a few months he would just take it and park it on his farm. Shame to let so many just sit in the weather and rot like that. It's crazy. I'd love to have that 58 Cameo. Way out of my league already. Interesting to see it play out.

There are numerous 250 engines there with virtually no miles not to mention the 348 and 396.

Keep in mind that an engine that has been sitting for 50 years will need a rebuild regardless of miles.
